Subject: Damn I JUST Missed the Jazz Concert!
Pretty breezy portrait of Santa Monica is shown here, with it's beaches, Amusement parks and businesses and what not. The 1st part seems to dwell more on recreation, where as the second part deals with economics. I of course like the first part more, but the movie itself on it's own is pretty good. Best part of course is the exploration of it's amusement park of the day, Pacific Ocean Park, with it's deep sea thing, the roller coaaster and other wild rides. We explore all of this, and an appearance by Cesar Romero too!

Subject: The Control Voice of Santa Monica
Greetings. If the narrator of this production sounds a bit familiar, there's a good reason. The film was narrated by Vic Perrin, who would within a few years not only appear in Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone" series, but also provide the opening and closing monologues' "Control Voice" for the original "The Outer Limits" shows.

Just a little trivia tidbit.

Subject: It's not like this anymore
Because I grew up in Los Angeles, this is nostalgic for me, and if I could blast myself back to this idealized Santa Monica I would, but otherwise this is well made but ordinary.
